Meredith Deasley is a woman who is working very hard in her community to put an end to the suffering of children. She recognizes that the general health of our children is the worst that it has ever been. Today allergies, chronic illness, recurrent infections, obesity, depression, learning disabilities, autism, diabetes and others are rampant. Meredith strongly believes that the North American diet and emotional stress are the two greatest contributing factors to the pervasive poor health we are seeing. She knows that it is never too late to restore health to the body and mind of a child.
In 1989, Meredith obtained a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the University of Western Ontario and at the age of 20 began her ten-year corporate career. She started in 1990 as a Commercial Underwriter for Lombard Canada and then became their youngest manager of their cross border facility. Next, she performed seminars and created marketing materials for Canada Life where she was their Senior Marketing Manager in the Group Life and Health division from 1995 -1997. Meredith then became a Commercial Insurance Broker for Keilty, Muntz, and Beatty from 1997-1999.
By 2002, Meredith had given birth to two daughters and healed them of their extreme reactions to food. In that same year, she started her own company, “The Resourceful Mother”, specializing in pediatric nutrition. Meredith is a Registered Nutritional Consulting Practitioner (R.N.C.P.), graduating from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition (CSNN) in Richmond Hill with the highest marks in her class. In 2012, Meredith became a Life Coach (A.C.C.) with the International Coach Federation (ICF), the only globally recognized life coaching designation. She has helped hundreds of families solve their physical and emotional health challenges through consultations. She also conducts nutrition and emotional health seminars for parents, teachers and students. These seminars take place at parenting and community centres and schools, to name a few. She also teaches Pediatric Nutrition and Body, Mind, Spirit at CSNN. She has been interviewed on numerous radio and television shows and been written about in newspapers and magazines for the past decade.
For many years, Meredith’s clients and audience members had been requesting that Meredith author a book because of the clarity with which she understands the health issues that are facing our children of today. After 6 years of researching and writing, Meredith published her breakout book, “The Resourceful Mother’s Secrets to Healthy Kids” in 2010. This book is the pediatric textbook for The Edison Institute of Nutrition. After another 3 years of researching and writing, Meredith published her second book, “The Resourceful Mother’s Secrets to Emotional Health” in 2014. She continues to teach parents around the world how to nourish the bodies and souls of their children.
